took the market by storm two >> narrator: from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee give ford and hoda kotb live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> hey! >> hoda's favorite day. among many. it's booze day tuesday. now known as spanky tuesday. it's the first day of march. that's "back it up." featuring jennifer lopez. >> if you've seen shades of blue, it's one of the hits on nbc which has been renewed. congratulations.
kind of. but how dirty can j. lo ever be? she's also on her last season of "american idol" and her ever so hot vegas residency. >> also just extended by popular demand. >> and she's a mother of two. she'll sit down with us for two segments. not one, but two. >> the first time she will be sitting down in a long time. and the newest boy band that will get the young girls hearts racing. they were a hoda pick a while back and they'll be singing their latest single. plus ryan scott is in the kitchen. he's giving us a little sugar later. >> with willie. >> congratulations on the boy band. >> what kind of cookies are they? >> brown butter salted cashew and chocolate chip.
we'll make it step to step. these are really good. >> hoda can have it. >> and i can have it all. >> today is the first of march and always an easy day for me to remember because one of my favorite people in the entire world was born on this day. i want to say happy 90th birthday to my son's godfather, stanley moore. can we see that picture of him? look at him. he looked like that the day i met him 35 years ago. he's such a beautiful ethical human being. i love the man. >> i've met him several times at your house. first of all, he's so much fun, sharp as a tack. >> he still plays squash. enjoys a little vino once in a while. stanley, i love you. i love you. so this is something we love, too. it's when somebody in the armed
reunited with their family. >> if you wanted to find true love, this is it right here. so 7-year-old alex from virginia was really missing his dad. he's been deployed in the navy for 99 days. so his mom wanted just to cheer him up. take a look at what happened. >> i don't know if you're ready to hear it. >> what? he's coming home? >> i don't know. what do you think? >> no. >> what do you think he has to tell you? >> i don't know. >> you don't know? if you can think of one surprise in the whole world, what would it be? >> him coming home. >> daddy's home. >> oh, my gosh.
still gets to me. >> it's like getting under the cupboards with twinkies and sobbing. >> my daddy was a chief petty officer. and you know what i love so much, the kid didn't even talk. he just clung for dear life. just precious. >> beautiful. >> so we'll put you in a good mood. if you happen to be in -- >> that put me in a good mood. these are tears of joy. >> okay. so -- >> that was so beautiful. >> we're ruining our makeup with j. lo coming on. >> do you remember i told you that my arm was hurting me? >> yes, because you take selfies. >> i am a selfie taker. i want to know if anyone else is getting tennis elbow from taking selfies. and i'm not kidding.
i had to go to the doctor and he said any repeated motion. he goes with the phone, i was like, oh, my god, that kills me. so i wonder if anyone else is getting tennis elbow from taking selfies. just let me know. >> let other people take your picture. >> that's what i'm going to do. but i bet the young kids will have thumb problems and elbow problems. >> and social problems. >> anyway, joy to the world. all right. so oprah winfrey is doing something cool. she's auctioning off a lot of stuff from her closet on ebay. and so you can buy things. now, i heard a rumor that she wear as size 10 shoe and i wear a 9 1/2. and sometimes i wear a 10, too. anyway, all kinds of stuff from sale.
already on ebay for $1200. and look at her 10 size louie vuitton. >> oh, get those. you need those. >> look how -- how come none of her stuff is like scuffed up? >> she wore them probably once. >> how about a slip. a slip from oprah. >> a black sheer waste band. >> and all the proceeds go to her leadership academy in south africa. the auction ends march 10. >> you get to the point in life where you look in your closet and say i haven't worn that in five years. somebody would love that. we should do it, too. >> i like the things i have like these shoes. >> hoda, love the dress. really love those shoes. >> i've literally had these shoes for eight years and they're my favorite. >> and this is the dress you
j.lo. >> my j. lo dress. i'm wearing it again. >> and it's time. >> time for the bachelor. >> you're quite the superstar. everybody loves you. and they love your updates. >> it's a passion. so last night the show made bachelor history, okay? this is important because this is why. there has always been an unwritten rule that when the girls start to say i love you to the bachelor, they're not supposed to respond, they're supposed to stay vague and it's not until the finale that they can ask express their love. ben broke the rule. take a look at his date with lauren and see what he says. >> i am completely in love with you. >> i've known i'm in love with you for a while, as well.
>> i love you, too. >> that's crazy. >> okay. so super cute, but there are two other girls still left. so then he had to go on a date the next day with jo-jo knowing he told the other girl he loved her. so let's look at her date. >> i do love you, and that's weird that i just said that because i've been so terrified about saying that. i don't want to think about what it would be like to lose you. >> jo-jo, i love you, too. >> what? >> i do. >> are you allowed to say that? >> i have no idea. >> today is the best day of my life. i'm so happy. i'm really happy.
am. >> still one to go? >> no, no, no. we need to marinate that for a second. what just happened? >> i'm living like kris harris so that says the show applauds him for living in the moment. but one of those girls is going to be devastated. >> first time i didn't like ben. first time ever. >> does he want america to hate him? >> and jo-jo is the one with the brothers. remember the brothers? >> oh, i love the brothers. >> they will beat him up. >> did he say it again, is there a third person? >> here is the third girl. he did send her home. she didn't make it. so she gets in the car. but what i liked about her, she's like wait a minute, i have some questions. and she got back out of the car and confronts him and says did you know this whole time. because this is the fantasy suite episode. so who knows what happened in the fantasy suite.
>> and she cried her way home. so we're down to the two girls. who do you think he's going to pick? >> who do you think? >> i don't even like him anymore. >> when you hear him talk, he like puts her on a pedestal where he always talks about her saying she lets me be myself. >> he kissed her ring finger. isn't that what he did? >> please don't tell me you're paying that close attention. >> suddenly because i don't like him now after he said i love you to two girls. >> have you ever been in love with two people at the same time? >> no i have not. >> is it possible? >> he says it's possible. >> i think there is lust at the same time, but i don't think there is love. you've been in love with two people at the same time? >> i've been in lust with two people. >> lust is okay. >> we have to get here because this is big from the bronx to vegas, baby. jennifer lopez sits down with us

don't. >> and with everything on your plate, when you found out this was picked up for a second season, which was reason to celebrate -- >> oh, yay. not true. i was very excited. because we worked so hard on it. we developed it for like 2 1/2 years. and we wanted it -- we knew it could be something special. you know what i mean? and when it comes together and that happens -- but, yes, i'm busy, but it's a good busy. you put the work in and you're like okay. >> look what happened. and one of the rare days that you don't have anything to do, what do you do? >> nothing. i'm very like sweats, you know, pajama top and the fuzzy socks with hearts on them. the bun and the no makeup. and i do like -- and everybody makes fun of me. >> i like the no makeup.
